Adaptive remeshing method in 2D based on refinement and coarsening techniques

Abstract : The analysis of mechanical structures using the Finite Element Method, in the framework of large elastoplastic strains, needs frequent remeshing of the deformed domain during computation. Remeshing is necessary for two main reasons, the large geometric distortion of finite elements and the adaptation of the mesh size to the physical behavior of the solution. This paper presents an adaptive remeshing method to remesh a mechanical structure in two dimensions subjected to large elastoplastic deformations with damage. The proposed remeshing technique includes adaptive refinement and coarsening procedures, based on geometrical and physical criteria. The proposed method has been integrated in a computational environment using the ABAQUS solver. Numerical examples show the efficiency of the proposed approach.
